Dave Finnegan's Commitments: Live at the Cathedral

Friday 30 April at 7:30 PM

Stelliferous Limited and Live at the Cathedral Ltd by arrangement with Piper Music Management presents Dave Finnegan’s Commitments and Lolly: Live at Durham Cathedral.

Over twenty years on, neither time age nor music has managed to tame one of the soul survivors of the Commitments. Mickah Wallace is brasher and louder than ever and continuing to spread the gospel of soul to the undisputed masses.  Dave Finnegan's Commitments undoubtedly continue where the film left off, still spreading the word of Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett and the other apostles of soul, and in doing so enabling us all to experience live, the essence of... sweet soul music.
